WASHINGTON, Aug. 17. The Navy
Department tonight received the follow
ing cablegram from Admiral Remey:
"Taku, Aug. 17, 1 A. M. Bureau Navi
gation, Washington: Pekln was captured
on August 15. Foreign Legations are
safe. Details follow shortly.
The Acting Secretary of State later
made public the following telegram from
the United States Consul at Che Foo:
"Che Foo, Aug. 17. (Received Aug. 17,
7:55 P. M.) Secretary of State, Wash
ington: 17th Japanese Admiral reports
allies attacked Pekln, east, 15th. Obsti
nate resistance. Evening, Japanese en-
tered capital with other forces. Immedi
ately surrounded legations. Inmates
safe. Japanese loss over 100: Chinese, 300.
Previous Information which had been
received here showed that the allies took
possession of Tung Chow the 12th Inst.
From that city to Pekln the distance Is
not very great, not more than a dozen
miles. It seems evident, therefore, that
the armies halted for a time at Tung
Chow, probably for the purpose of giving
the men a rest and preparing for the
attack upon the capital city In force after
waiting until the rear of the advancing
hosts should arrive & the front Possi-
bly also the delays wasx tfae-resultH,pi
negotiations begun by the Chinese offi
cials looking to tho delivery of "the Min
isters with & Chinese or other escort.
If negotiations were attempted they must
have failed, as the army continued on
its inarch and attacked the capital three
days after reaching Tung Chow.
The officials here were aware of the
fact that the stronghold of the Boxers was
in tho Chinese city and for the allies
to attempt to force their way through
into the Tartar city, In which the lega
tion compounds are located, might mean
a great loss of life and possibly a de
feat. It was also known that the Im
perial troops who hae sided with the
Boxers were, many of them, In or near
the Chinese city, and that much of the
artillery and rifle fire which has been
poured into the legations had been from
the wall separating the two cities.
These facts were evidently communi
cated to General Chaffee and the other
commanding officers of the allies. Realiz
ing these obstacles it appears that the
allies decided to attack the city by
the east gate. There are four gates to
the city on the east, two leading to the
Chinese city and two to the Tartar city.
Just which one of these was selected as
the attacking point Consul Fowler's dis
patch does not disclose.
Contrary to the press reports of today
Consul Fowler's dispatch shows that the
attack on the city met with strong re
sistance. The Jap&neso force engaged
with, the advance, according to the un
derstanding of the officials here, num
bered 10,000 men, so the loss suffered by
them was over 1 per cent. Allowance is
made for losses in the forces of the
other armies, but it is presumed that It
was In proportion to that of the Japan-
time for publication In the London morn
The Morning Post, which is the only
paper printing the Che Foo message,
says: "Today is not only a day of Na
tional rejoicing, it is also a day of con
gratulation for all the powers of the
world." Proceeding to discuss the prob
abilities of a cessation of hostilities, the
Morning Post asserts that the United
States is willing to abandon any idea of
further aggressive action, but it ques
tions the disposition of Germany and
other powers to agree to such a course.
The Berlin correspondent of the Morn
ing Post says he learns that no formal
request for an armistice has yetreached
the powers and that It Is impossible that
any such request would be granted.
The other papers comment guardedly on
the general situation, on account of the
lack of definite news when the editorials
were written. Most of them advocate
a stern inquisition regarding outrages
and the punishment of the leaders, even
if they have to be pursued all over Chi
na. The Dally Graphic, in a paragraph
apparently inspired, says thero is no rea
son to believe that any of the powers ttIII
repudiate the previous understanding to
respect the integrity of tho empire and
tho dynasty, adding that the proposal
to land a British force at Shanghai origi
nated not in the British Government but
with the Chinese who, at the same time,
said that this should be done if likely
to lead to International complications.
"This," says the Daily Graphic, "dis
poses of the story that the Viceroy of
Nankin changed his mind under the in
fluence of the Consuls. Her Majesty's
Government, we believe, has no inten
tion of contesting the right of France or
the United States to land troops should
either think it necessary."
The Chinese Minister at Tokio. Li
Che'ng Toh, has telegraphed Li Hung
Chang, according to a dispatch to the
Times from Shanghai, that Japan is will

the Empress Dowager and Emperor
Kwang Hsu, but Is determined to prevent
the escape of Prince Tuan, of Tang KI.
president of the Board of War; of Hsu
Tung, guardian of the heir-apparent, and
of Chao Su Chlao, Commissioner of the
Railway and Mining Bureau
"Li Hung Chang," tho dispatch con
tinues, "has received instructions from
the throne to ask Russia If she Is willing
to assist China to Arrive at a peaceful
settlement and to give assurances that
she has no Intention of annexing any
part of Manchuria. If the reply Is fa
vorable, Earl LI has orders to negotiate
without delay. Simultaneously the mili
tary in Manchuria will be directed to
cease hostilities "
The second edition of the Daily Tele
graph publishes a special dispatch from
Shanghai, which says:
"The allies entered Pekln unopposed,
and met with a friendly reception from
Prince Chinff. All the hostile elements
have already escaped from the city. The
imperial court left for Shon Si August
11 with the Manchus. The Kausau troops
have gone southwest, with the object of
drawing off the allies and preventing
them from following up the court"

Welpton, from China. Dr. Leslie, who
has no less than 15 wounds on his body
as the result of his encounter with the
Chinese, tells the following story:

and Mrs. P. C Leslie, and three Ameri
can engineers Messrs. Jamieson, Held
and Fisher and myself.
"About the 10th day of our Journeying
we were suddenly attacked by 200 or S0t
yolling Chinese robbers. The day before
a part of our little force had gone from
us, originally with the intention of secur
ing a military escort from some of the
local Chinese officials. Those who had
left us were Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Simmon,
with their little child; Mr. and Mrs. R. A.
Mitchell, and the three American engi
neers. Out of the 11 left there were only
flve men, and among us five there were
only three revolvers. The Chinese at first
made a furious attack upon us, bringing
our carts to a standstill and completely
surrounding us. They pelted us with
bricks and stones, and anything they
could lay their hands on, at the same
time slashing away with swords, those
who were armed, and yelling all tho time'
like so many maniacs.

A resolution by Mr. Brandlow, of Cleve

subserve their Interests as wage-workers,
it is essential that they act as a unit
upon the political field, whence capital
derives its power to oppress, and that it
is the duty of every member to server
affiliation with all political parties of the
